I have a lot of trouble reading the Old Testament of the Bible. I’ve tried, and I’ve tried…and it’s just impossible for me. I’ve read through Genesis, even studied it for 2 weeks at Chapter camp and I loved it. I’ve tried to go from there and it just didn’t work out. In college I took a Judiaum class in hopes that it would inspire me to read more of the “Hebrew Scriptures”. Again, it couldn’t help me.
Right now I’m reading this book that talks about how the Bible is believed to have more than 40 authors. Instead of God using one man to write the Bible he chose lots of different people. Why is that? The author suggests it’s to present God from 40 different perspectives from all different periods of time. What an amazing way to view scripture and to read about God.
With all this said, I still can’t read the O.T. I never went to Sunday school as a kid so I don’t really know any of the old stories besides what’s found in Genesis. I can’t answer anyone’s questions regarding any of it! Do I really need to? Any advice?
